Bernie,
More info. about this please. I know a guy that something like you describe. I could never find a name on it. This thing has a Onan engine on it and it has hydrostatic drive. This thing does look kinda like very small jeep. 2 people can ride in it. Now with my description, is this what you are talking about? No, it's not for sale, I've been trying to buy it for a couple years. Too bad because it's been sitting outside under a tree for 15 years or so. Amazingly it isn't rusty other than surface rust. You know, he is one of those that says I'm gone fix it up one day. We all know that one day will ever come. After all it's his, so no one will ever get as long as he lives and he has a son just like him so that thing will not be available for anyone to fix up for many years.

Hello Bernie
I have a little info for you. Roof mfg.Co. of Pontiac Ill. bilt the Palamino from 1968-1971. Only 600 were produced. From what i have herd thay were quite expensive at that time. In 1972 Roof rebilt the unit into a utility mower. Roof 60. All models caried 60" mower decks. The Palamino's are about 3/4 the size of a jeep. Marion
